Brussels Sprouts 4 Ways

 

I went to the farmers market, and came home with a gigantic bag of Brussel sprouts that transformed into some delicious Maple Glazed Ginger Brussels Sprouts, Parmesan Pesto Brussels Sprouts, Red Hot Brussels Sprouts, and Sesame Soy Brussels Sprouts. On Insta, I asked ya’ll to throw some Brussels sprouts recipe ideas my way, and cooking inspiration came raining from the heavens! I was inspired to create not 1, but 4 different variations. These all came out absolutely amazing, and I literally have my vegetable intake covered for the week.

I could live on Brussels sprouts.  I love everything about them, so this week was super enjoyable for me.  Brussels sprouts are packed with nutrition.  They are a huge source of potassium, vitamin K, and vitamin C.  They’re also an excellent source of fiber.  So your body will definitely be thanking you through these four recipes.

Brussel Sprouts Recipe

To start, the first recipe is Maple Glazed Ginger Brussels Sprouts. Cook some ginger in oil in a small pot for a couple of minutes. Then add maple syrup in with that ginger. Finally, throw in those sprouts.  Cook the whole mixture for 5-7 minutes until the sprouts are deep golden brown.

    These sound fantastic! We get four to six stalks of Brussels Sprouts from our CSA late each summer, and while my family is always happy to eat them sauteed in a little butter and mixed with bacon crumbles…I’ve been looking for more healthful options. I’m adding all four of these recipes to my file. Thank you!
